Prepare yourself to melt into the eyes of this adorable pair, Corbin and Jacque. Corbin and Jacque are handsome tricolor boys that were surrendered to Cavalier Rescue USA without a lot of background information. We think it is likely that they were previously used for breeding.
We were told, and the vet estimates, that Corbin is around 10 years old and Jacque is around 7. While they aren’t littermates, they do share many of the same characteristics and definitely look to each other for comfort and friendship.
These two little love sponges like to spend their time snuggled up in a bed, a couch, or at your feet waiting for pets and scratches. Despite being older, Corbin is the spunkier of the two and has an adorable mischievous side that he’s learning to embrace. Jacque is more mellow and reserved, but is much more wanting of affection and attention. They both are learning basic commands and leash walking, as this was foreign to them. They do have a tendency to try and sneak out of doors, so a family dedicated to safety is of utmost importance. Both of them love to meet new people and dogs and are still figuring out their place in the world! They are curious, loving, and are so happy to have space, a home, and the feeling of safety and comfort.
Both Corbin and Jacque had a significant amount of teeth removed due to poor dental hygiene, however, this has not affected their ability to eat. Corbin has mild degenerative valve disease and mild pulmonary hypertension which requires daily heart medication, Vetmedin, and yearly cardiology visits along with regular checkups at the vet. He is also hard of hearing, but has shown improvement with responding to high pitch noises and claps and stomps. They both were just recently neutered while in foster care, so continued work on house training will be needed.
Currently Corbin and Jacque live with a dog foster brother and they often look to him for guidance and general interaction. Because they were not well socialized previously, and are just figuring out how to live their best lives, we are recommending a house with another mild-mannered dog, but where they would also get all of the love and attention they deserve.
They are crate trained and are in there when left alone for an extended period as well as sleeping overnight. Corbin and Jacque are truly the sweetest, most loving and adorable dogs you will ever meet – they are sure to bring joy to your family!
